There is a third machine (, ip address from isp) that acts as a
gateway router. When my internet connection goes down for whatever reason I
loose connections in my local network. For example, i can't ping
from is there any explaination for this?
Can you give more details about the topology?  Does the gateway have 2 NICs?
I assume there's a hub on the inside?  Please post the output from ifconfig
on the gateway machine.

is it because my default
route is set to be external?
No, that doesn't normally cause problems to a local network.  When our Internet
goes down it doesn't affect internal traffic in the slightest. This is a rather
strange problem.
